A couple of weeks ago I was given the all clear to build up my weekly training to 3x25minute runs a week. The sports doctor is reluctant to get me back training ‘properly’ until my bone density has improved, but having suffered an 8 month long injury with no running at all I’m happy to be doing anything really!
This will take 6 weeks to build up, adding on 10 minutes of total running time each week. I’m currently on 3x10minute runs which have all been going smoothly. The usual procedure involves glute work to warm up, drills, jog, and then some strength work in the gym. However this week I have cut back on the gym work after irritating a muscle/ nerve (not really too sure) in my back after carrying heavy bags. Jess has been guiding me along the way which has been really great, and I’m looking forward to getting to those longer runs that actually count as runs!
Okay so this is a very, very short post and I do apologise for that. But I have been busy creating a workout video (see below) and also a PDF for you to reference should you ever need to (hopefully not!). I hope you all have a lovely weekend (and you can look forward to a more lengthy post next week!).
You can find a list of all my workouts on the workout page.
